In the past, clinicians who worked with clients with substance abuse issues focused primarily on cognitive and behavioral issues related to “addictive patterns of thinking”, recovery skills, relapse planning, and the twelve steps. Based upon my studies and experience, I have come to believe we must address the underlying issues of addiction, often attachment disorders. Until we have treatment that understands the role attachment disorders have on substance misuse disorders, we will continue to have people enter treatment because of poor attachment models. I like to use the analogy of a medical doctor continually prescribing antibiotics but failing to identify the source of the infection. Healing and prevention depend upon helping clients deal with their losses, hurts, and poor relationship building skills.
